Vaxxed Overrepresented in Indiana COVID Cases & UK Deaths

For the first time, the vaccinated account for over half of the past week's COVID cases in Indiana. They made up 55% of cases, while 54% of Hoosiers are vaccinated. This is based on records I compile using data from Indiana's coronavirus website and the Regenstrief website that shows hospitalizations here. Click image to enlarge.

Numbers at 12/30/21 are likely off due to delays in reporting over Christmas.

COVID is spreading like a brush fire through the highly vaccinated office where I work, where there's been more coughing and sneezing in the past week than I've heard in two years. Coworkers are grabbing up tests, even as some of them doubt negative results. Why they bother to take a test if they're already so sure of the outcome that they doubt the result, I don't know. A few unvaccinated coworkers and I haven't been among the sick so far.

The table shows a small proportion of breakthrough hospitalizations and deaths among the vaccinated, but keep in mind Indiana considers you vaccinated if you've had two shots of Pfizer or Moderna or one of J&J no matter how long ago they were. It doesn't matter whether you're boosted or how long ago you had your shots. Most of the shots were given early in 2021 and only 24% of Hoosiers are boosted. Despite efficacy against hospitalization and death having worn off, the rates have been fairly steady since October.

Indiana isn't alone: the UK is showing negative efficacy (i.e., more harm than good) from the vaccines not only in cases, but deaths. Unlike Indiana, the UK specifies cases and deaths among the unjabbed, double-jabbed and boosted, and the double-jabbed are doing worse than the refusers. Just something to think about before getting boosted. 

For anyone paying attention, it's game over. As Dr. Michael Eades puts it in the latest issue of The Arrow,

Now, the administrations 'new' narrative sounds a whole lot like the Great Barrington Declaration. Let's care for the vulnerable. Don't test if you don't have symptoms. If you do test positive and develop symptoms, don't PCR test again after the symptoms are gone as the PCR can stay positive for up to 12 weeks. Just wait for a couple of days after symptoms have cleared and go back to work.

Everything but one has changed. The powers that be realize they can't restrain an infectious, aerosol-spread virus with lockdowns, masks, social distancing and the rest of the song and dance they've been going through. They can't even stop it with the current vaccines. In fact, more people get it per capita who have been vaccinated than who are unvaxxed.

Our leaders (some of them, anyway) are finally realizing what the data showed months or years ago and acting accordingly. What the wise man does in the beginning, the fool does in the end.

New Food Reviews; Optimizing Projects

I love novelty. Despite getting in trouble for trying new foods (I ended up in an ambulance once), I enjoy new foods enough to keep trying them.  With the flu going around the office, I thought I'd try fermenting L. casei shirota in pawpaw fruit puree. Pawpaw is a mango-like fruit native to eastern North America. It's very sweet, but fermentation reduces sugar. I cooked the raw puree before fermenting it, then had a few bites with some pork. A few hours later, I was vomiting. It's been days and I'm still not feeling right.  Despite the web full of articles on the amazing properties of pawpaw fruit, it contains neurotoxins . Even members of the Lewis and Clark expedition might have gotten sick on it .  Fortunately, I have fermented pear juice. I put a few capsules of Floristat in the bottle and left it on the counter for a few days. It tastes good and makes my stomach feel a little better.  Finally, Mark Sisson has come out with a healthy queso dip in his Primal Kitchen

Gridlock at Ottawa, Alberta Border

A lot of Americans buy medications from Canada since it can be cheaper out-of-pocket than buying it with health insurance in the US. You might re-order early if you're one of them. I don't know whether the protest will affect delivery, but it can only make it worse. And the protestors are not going away. The US-Canada border crossing at Coutts, Alberta / Sweet Grass, Montana is gridlocked with hundred of trucks in an anti-mandate protest, bottlenecking the road to one lane. Back east, hundreds of trucks are still parked and honking in Ottawa as shown above.  Truckers in the Canada convoys say they're staying put until all the country's COVID mandates are lifted. They have over $8 million in funds, their own lawyers, and in many cases, beds and mini-fridges in their trucks. Locals are bringing them food and tow truck drivers are refusing police requests to tow the trucks. Convoy leaders say they have the resources to settle in for four years .  Meanwhile, Canada's pr

Winning and a New Blogger

The convoys have continued and caught on. In the middle of winter in Canada, droves are driving to be in conga lines, carry jerry cans, bounce in bouncy castles, and blockade the border. If many more crossings are blocked, the US-Canada border will be closed. As an American, I feel slightly rejected.  But the protestors are winning. Alberta and Saskatchewan have dropped, or will drop, their mandates and Quebec dropped its plans for a unvaxxed tax. Crowds carrying jerry cans (fuel cans) showed up in Ottawa after police threatened to arrest anyone bringing fuel. GiveSendGo, the protestors' crowd funding platform, thumbed their nose at a Canadian court order to block payments to the protestors. More convoys are happening around the world and there is supposed to be one scheduled for Washington, DC. I won't be going. I support the convoys, but it's not my fight: life is normal here at Cafe Americain and it's hopping at work. Dropping everything to go to Detroit to sit in

Attorney General Calls out CDC for Spreading COVID Misinformation

The Office of the US Surgeon General called for information on the prevalence of misinformation about COVID--and Indiana's attorney general told them to look in the mirror. AG Todd Rokita, along with Drs. Jay Bhattacharya of Stanford University and Kulldorff (formerly of Harvard), spelled out the misinformation that the CDC and other government organizations spread that "has led to great harm in the lives and livelihoods of Americans" and "shattered the public’s trust in science and public health and will take decades to repair." The memo notes--with citations--the government's failure to accurately count, their natural immunity denial, their false claims that the shots prevented spread, their worse-than-useless mask mandates, school closures, tracing and lockdowns, and their zero-COVID fantasy.  Have you noticed that you never hear "follow the science" anymore? It's because science doesn't support the aggressive busybodies who shouted &quo

Freedom Convoy Arrives in Ottawa, Canada

A huge convoy of truckers that started on the west coast of Canada has begun arriving in Ottawa, the country's capitol. They are protesting vaccine mandates and they're not alone. Other convoys headed for Ottawa started around Canada and the United States--even farmers driving tractors have joined them. Prime Minister Justin Trudeau called them a small fringe group, but according to the video below, the head of the convoy crossed into Ontario as the tail was crossing the border into Manitoba. That's close to 500 miles (800 kilometers) long.  Various news sources I've read say the vast majority of the truckers are vaccinated. The point isn't the vaccines, it's the mandates. As Canadian vlogger Viva Frei puts it, Canada and particular his home province of Quebec is being run by idiots. (As are parts of the US.) The idiots running Quebec forbade unvaccinated people to use big box stores, but allowed them to go to pharmacies...not realizing that Wal-Mart (a big bo
